Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports, “The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission’s decision last week to review all construction projects came two months after the majority of the five-member board approved a $5.7 billion, 10-year capital plan over the objections of the chairman and vice chairman.” The report adds, “The majority say that they were aware of potential financial shortfalls but the capital plan is a necessary working document. . . .
